    50 Cent Launches Energy Shot "Street King" To Help Feed One Billion Children Plus a Open Letter

    50 Cent Launches Energy Shot "Street King" To Help Feed One Billion Children
    by Steven J. Horowitz  posted August 12, 2011

    WCN Transmedia Group has learned that Curtis Jackson (50 Cent) is putting his money where his mouth is and leading by example.  We love the opportunity to serve is so important and using ones celebrity for good is a great thing.  We have heard about the Poverty Tour and while that is a great way to draw attention to the problems facing America's middle class and poor.  Merchandising to solve hunger is a solid plan that we enthusiastically support.  You Go 50.

    Now lets monetize your music videos so people can purchase anything seen and make even more money for the cause.  Transmedia Brandcasting will accomplish that and WCN is more than willing to help see the open letter at the end of this post.

    Fifty has partnered with a New York City, New York company to launch his energy drink in September.

    50 Cent is making good on his promise to help feed one billion children. The Hip Hop mogul has teamed up with Pure Growth Partners to launch Street King, an energy shot that will supply a child in need with a meal for every shot purchased (via HHNM).


    The shot will launch in September and be available in Orange Mango and Grape flavors. For $2.49 to $2.99, the shot contains 100 percent natural flavors, no artificial colors and caffeine derived from coffee

    beans. Each shot has no calories, carbohydrates or sugar, and is fortified with gingko biloba and vitamins.

    “50 Cent and I share a common vision: to address the world’s problems through smart and sustainable business models,” Clarke said in a statement. “With the rampant starvation in Africa and hunger afflicting children worldwide, we need socially responsible businesses that affect real change now more than ever. And Street King can set the bar for future generations to come.”


    “I’m inspired by [Clarke’s] vision and innovative approaches to tackling serious issues,” added Fifty in a statement. “It’s our mission with Street King to really change children’s lives around the world,” Jackson said in a statement.”

    Open Proposal to 50 Cent:

    Fifty everything seen in these two videos can be made interactive so that viewers can instantly purchase anything seen. From the Furs, to the cars, clothes, jewelry you name it.
    Advertisers, Merchandisers, and Retailers there is a new way to reach your audience and increase sales from music video.  What would you purchase if you could from these videos.  Tell 50 Cent so we can cut a deal. Advertisers, Merchandisers and Retailers any video can be made interactive that features your products.  Transmedia Brandcasting monetizes streaming video to create more sales with reporting you cannot currently get from Nielson.
